Users say:
I have successfully used DVDRemake to do several 1:1 and 1:2 copies as well as tweak some of my own movies. I am one that doesn't like to lose menus when I do backups, but definitely do want to lose previews, logos, etc. I have tried a lot of the so-called "automatic" programs like DVD-Fab, DVD X-Copy, etc., but have not had much success with them. Let's face it, every DVD is a little different, and to expect a program to account for everything is asking a lot. I think of DVDRemake as a "Visual" IFOEdit. rubicat

  Overview
 

DvdReMake Pro inserts a standart start-up menu to select one of the merged disks for playback. Buttons just say: "Disk 1", "Disk 2", etc. Not very informative. But there is an easy way to change the default text to what you need. This method will keep buttons position and their highlights. If you want to completely modify the start-up menu so that it fits your disk design you will need to use this method.

  Replace default start-up menu
 

Step 1. Download archive with menu backgrounds (2, 3 and 4-buttons) for your TV system (it is same images that were used to create default menus, but without any text - only with highlight "pins"):

Step 2. Extract image with needed amount of buttons and edit it in any bitmap editor to add custom text for each merged DVD

Step 3. Author a dummy DVD with edited bitmap. Easy way to do it is to use Muxman program

Step 4. Import this dummy DVD into DvdReMake Pro

Step 5. Original start-up menu is located in the menu domain of the last VTS. Open original menu in preview, right click and "replace with still" (DvdReMake Pro 3.1+ is required).

Step 6. Select block with your edited bitmap and hit "OK".

Step 7. Done. Now you can export, burn the disk with your faivorite aplication and enjoy nicely looking customized start-up menu.
